Alpha’s unrefined, cold-pressed red palm oil is rich in three natural nutrients necessary to boost your health: vitamin E, beta-carotene, and CoQ10.
The “super Vitamin E” gamma-tocotrienol abundant in red palm oil is an antioxidant proven to be helpful for maintaining good health. Most vitamin E supplements provide the alpha-tocopherol form, which is good, but palm tocotrienols have been shown to be more potent antioxidants and possess superior overall health benefits. Unrefined RPO possesses both sets of vitamin E tocopherols and tocotrienols.
Red palm oil is also the richest natural source of beta-carotene; it contains about 15 times as much as in carrots and 300 times as much as tomatoes. It is this nutrient which gives red palm oil its deep orange-red color. Beta-carotene is the most active and important form of carotenoids, which are used by the body to produce vitamin A.
Finally, RPO is a powerful provider of Coenzyme Q10, widely recognized for its heart-health benefits. CoQ10 seems to be effective in lowering blood pressure and in inhibiting the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, thereby reducing the formation of arterial plaque. The fatty acid composition of red palm oil is itself a healthy mixture of saturated, monounsaturated, polyunsaturated fatty acids. It contains no trans-fatty acids and does not promote bad cholesterol.
Red palm oil possesses excellent cooking properties. It is more heat stable than many other vegetable oils and adds superior taste, texture, and quality to all kinds of foods, including baked goods. Perfect for stir-fry and pasta.
Please note that Alpha’s RPO is not a GMO product. Neither does our provider, a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, contribute to endangering orangutans and other wildlife.
